Raheem Sterling: I thought it was not going to be our day


Striker Raheem Sterling feared Liverpool were about to crash out of the FA Cup after both Jordan Henderson and Emre Can struck the woodwork against Bolton Wanderers.

The Reds had to battle hard to reach the next round of the competition and the 20-year-old praised match-winner Philippe Coutinho for producing a piece of magic in the 90th minute of the game.

"We had a few chances to put the game away, but we didn't take them," Sterling told the club's official website after the 2-1 away win.

"A few of those chances came to me, so it was a great team effort to stick in the game and get the win at the end.

"When we went 1-0 down and we hit the woodwork so many times, I was thinking: 'It's not our day'. But I think the boys stuck in really well.

"I just saw the ball come over and saw that I was free. I watched the 'keeper and put it through his legs and I was happy to get on the scoresheet.

"[And] Philippe has that magic to turn the game on its head and that's what he did tonight, it was great individual skill and a great finish.

"The most important thing was to win the game and that's what we've done. We can go on to Crystal Palace now [in the fifth round] and hopefully nick a win there."
